The extent of Trump’s profiteering from our tax system reveals what he does know about the IRS – how to keep nine hundred million dollars without paying a nickel to support the benefits of living and doing business in our country. Not a dime toward national defense, not a nickel toward interstate highways, not a penny toward airport safety. Certainly not any dollars toward environmental programs. That’s not “smart” investment. His spokespersons say his real estate deals pay local taxes. But if he only pays what he must locally, how can he presume to be a national leader? Or whose national leader? He obviously is a leader of the one percent who, like him, hold their wealth inside byzantine networks of partnerships, limited liability companies, and corporations. Does that make him your leader?
